Templates 5-8: Changing Your Background Image


Templates 5-8 give parishes the opportunity to add a beautiful, large, background image to their website to bring in a little more visual appeal while building a greater visual connection between the parish and its website. We encourage parishes to use a clear, high-resolution photo from their own community that meansures 1366x768 pixels. This article will teach you how to add this image to your website.
